Chelsea manager Frank Lampard discusses return to training in an interview on BBC Football Focus programme.

Lampard and his players returned to training on Monday as part of preparations for the resumption of the Premier League.

The boss says it feels good to be out there with the boys after a two-month break due to Covid-19 outbreak.

“It’s been okay, it’s been great to see the players,” he said. 

“I’ve seen them on many Zoom calls and WhatsApp chats so it’s been nice to keep to working. It [training] is very restricted, and we have to abide by the restrictions because they’re there for a reason because of the time that we’re in.

“It’s been good to get some work into the players, it’s individual work. This might be a difficult process or a slow process, safety has to come first. Once we get over phase one and see what phase two might look like and beyond that then we can think about getting games back, albeit behind closed doors.

“I didn’t want to bombard them so they were bored of me but I did want them to know that I’m here. As the talk of restarting came it was an important conversation that we had collectively. Everybody is different and we’ve seen that with the reaction of players and that has to be respected in all ways. 

“We work every day as a family and a team, and we’ll respect everyone and how they feel about the restart and coming back to work.”

With phase one already a success story, clubs are not waiting for the Premier League's order to enter phase two of the training programme.
